Beekeepers of the Subarctic
Beekeepers of the Subarctic is a photo project that I plan to complete from 2016-2018, incorporating photo portraits of beekeepers who live and work in the subarctic or arctic zones, as well as certain possible near-subarctic zones in Canada, such as Newfoundland.
Beekeeping, as a human activity, has been going on for ten thousand years or more, and remains a critical human endeavor. Challenged by issues including colony collapse disorder, beekeepers face new challenges and costs to maintain their practices, to the benefit of the entire planet. The Arctic and Subarctic are areas of tremendous personal importance to me, and likewise face steep issues in the face of climate change, human intervention and expansion in the area for resources, and the like. I am interested in chronicling portraits of beekeepers in these northern zones, and hope that this project allows for that expression.
Please contact me at email@example.com if interested!
NOTE TO PARTICIPANTS
My primary goal is to get portraits of you, and it does not have to be in conjunction with or around your hives. If there is a place in your home or garden that is more meaningful to you, that is fine.
